This week; I signed up Reagan and Hannah to three days of making crafts at the scrapbooking store I go to in Brigham City. They have had a blast making all the things so far. Here, they are making coasters to hold their drinks on. Corkboard had to be applied as well as they were laminated before they took them home.Here; Donna (the owner of the shop) is helping them to decide what fabric they what for their flip-flops. The end decision was....every color that was available! That way their flip-flops match every outfit!

We have gone 3 years without much of a yard at our cabin. Only dirt. We weren't sure if we wanted to be mowing grass and watering everytime we were there. But we did know that we were getting tired of the kids having no where to play but in the DIRT! So we are trying to improve that situation. First up; are slides, next swingset and firepit. Even though it was really wet and muddy last weekend; we couldn't keep the kids from trying out the slides.

This past Saturday June 12, Bear Lake held a Marathon, a half marathon and 10 K walk.
Jolene and Erik decided to run the half marathon. (13 miles) Jolene had been training since January and when her partners backed out; Erik stepped up to the plate and ran it with Jolene so she wouldn't be alone. The rain held out long enough for the race.
Turning into the city park where the finish line was. It looks like Erik would win it ahead of Jolene, but he did let her finish the line ahead of him. (what a great big brother)

One of the funnest things about being a grandma is getting invited to see the kids school programs. Here is James (Jennifer's son) graduating from pre-school at West Weber ElementarySo it is now on to Kindergarten next year! He is one excited boy!
Reagan (Jennifer's daughter) loved the first grade! A full day including lunch was way fun. She had a darling year end program all about "Under the Sea" and everyone went home with these cute t-shirts. So it's on to second grade and she is excited!
The craziest thing of all is that Jennifer's oldest and my oldest grandchild will go to Jr. High next year! Kenidee is so grown up all of a sudden; and it is so much fun to see her experience more"grown-up " things like Young Womens and going to the temple for baptisms for the dead.
Do you know how you know that you are getting old? Your kids start getting old! (That applies to grandchildren too.)
